University of Houston Provost George Magner established the Core Advisory Committee in 1982 to implement and supervise a new undergraduate core curriculum. Over the next three and a half years, the committee considered 273 courses submitted by the various schools and departments of the university, eventually approving 157 for inclusion in the core. The committee issued its final report in July 1985, transferring responsibility for implementing and supervising the core curriculum to Undergraduate Council.
Materials were transferred to Special Collections in 2015.
